Last blog post

At the beginning of this semester, I was pondering about which modules should I take. I thought about whether this module was suitable for me. My first impression was that this module should be rather useful and practical since it would be teaching on how to write resumes and handle job interviews. On the other hand, I was also aware that the workload of this module would be rather heavy since there would not be a final exam as most of the assessment would be done through ongoing assignments.

True enough, it turns out that this module is very useful indeed and I managed to pick up a lot of skills and knowledge. Besides knowing how to write resumes and handle job interviews, I have also learned on how to give a good and effective presentation and other non-verbal communication skills. Even though the research project was tough indeed, I was glad that I had also gained some skills and considerations on how to produce a good report.

This module is one of the most enjoyable modules that I had taken so far in varsity. I enjoyed the interaction for the module as it allowed me to gain more insights through the different opinions and viewpoints being shared by everyone. I would also like to thank Brad for sharing with us some of his interesting experiences and anecdotes which helped to reinforce the communications concepts which were being taught.

I think this module would not have been so enjoyable without each and everyone of you. I'm glad that I got to meet new people through this module although it is regrettable that I did not have the opportunity to get to know everyone better. Now that this module is drawing to an end, I would like to wish everyone all the best in their final exams and their future endeavours :)
